Quotes of the Day [Sep. 23rd, 2005|11:09 am]
Peter Sheil
What can I say? They are all good today, although for different reasons.


Any reviewer who expresses rage and loathing for a novel is preposterous. He or she is like a person who has put on full armor and attacked a hot fudge sundae.
Kurt Vonnegut (1922 - )
Keep that image in your mind today :) It's probably the knights that say "Ni"!

Do not condemn the judgement of another because it differs from your own. You may both be wrong.
"You are either with us, or against us!" No actually there are many roads to travel ...

It is said that power corrupts, but actually it's more true that power attracts the corruptible. The sane are usually attracted by other things than power.
David Brin (1950 - )
This is one of the failings of all democracies - those who get to rule are driven by ambition (and sometimes by idealism to start with) and will often do anything to keep that power.

It is the nature of all greatness not to be exact.
Edmund Burke (1729 - 1797)
Yeah, that's why I can never add up a column of numbers and get it to the same total two times running :)

I agree! They're all good and the first does bring a wonderfully strange image to mind!

#3 is probably so true! It's inference that politicians are insane is also probably correct! I know I've read some books by David Brin... but I can't remember the titles. Guess it's time for some more research!

David Brin is one of my favorite authors...The Uplift Trilogy, Earth and The Practice Effect are my favorites!
